Sinus Surgery

Sinus Surgery

Most procedures performed at the USC Tina and Rick Caruso Department of Otolaryngology — Head and Neck Surgery can be performed endoscopically — through the nose with an endoscope — removing the need to make incisions to a patient’s face and reducing the time needed for recovery. Sinus surgery is used to open up passages that connect the nose to the sinuses. This detail-oriented surgery helps eliminate any partition in the drainage pathway, significantly reducing the chances of recurring issues.

Our surgeons create “open highways” in the nasal passages and then treat the disease on a systemic level with topical anti-inflammatories or intranasal steroid stents to keep the disease from recurring.
